The Hong Kong Gambit

The Hong Kong Gambit

Marine E: S.B.S.
A novel by

As British sovereignty over Hong Kong entered its final years, the prime concern of the colonial administration was to effect a smooth transition of power to China. But for the Triads, whose ruthlessness ensured their supremacy in the colony's thriving underworld, it was business as usual. Every night, crammed with contraband, their powerboats continued to run the gauntlet of police and Royal Marine patrols.

For Sergeant Des Cooper of the Special Boat Squadron, a trip to Hong Kong offered a chance to revisit places he had got to know many years earlier. But his decision to accompany an anti-smuggling patrol was to have far-reaching consequences. During a search of a vessel he uncovered a cargo far less predictable than the electrical goods that were usually seized . . . Suddenly the spectre of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of terrorists looked menacingly real.

Top-level decisions in London led to the formation of an elite task force which reunited Cooper with SBS colleague Matt Harbin and Linda Kirkdale, a tough and very bright British intelligence agent. Marine E SBS: The Hong Kong Gambit tells the story of how this highly trained team risked violent death - and worse - in their bid to crush a plot so dangerous that it threatened not only Hong Kong but the wider world too.
